List of things you need to buy for newborn baby

Around seven months of my pregnancy I began to slowly complete the essential items for a newborn baby. I bought most of the items online while the toiletries were from grocery. All in all I spent around 6k PHP excluding toiletries. I really took it as a challenge to spend as minimum as I can.

Here is an editable checklist that you can download and print. Meanwhile, here is the checklist for newborn essential with prices of some items:

mittens & booties (6 pairs) — 120php
going out socks (3 pairs) — 120php
NB tie sides sleeveless (6pcs)– 190php
NB tie sides w sleeves (6pcs)–190php
NB pyjama (6pcs) — 180php
NB shorts (6pcs) — 190php
going out onesies (3 pcs) — 240php
Curity Lampin (2 dozens) — 320php

*Most moms advise against investing too much on newborn’s apparel since the babies will just easily outgrow it. Babies will only be able to use it for about 2-3 months and you will need to buy new sets of clothes again.

*I bought the Lucky CJ brand online from Shopee. The fabric and the sew lines are of good quality for me. Lucky CJ items are a lot cheaper when you buy them at Baclaran. If you still have the energy to go there, you could get a really good bargain. But as for me, I just want to shop from the comfort of my own home.
